it was amazing
bookshelves: 5th-grade, historical-fiction

The difficult boy is an Irish teen who is an indentured servant to the local storekeeper who is mean and underhanded. Everyone calls him Paddy because he's Irish and doesn't really rate a name. The voice of the narrator is a 9 year old newly indentured boy who attempts to become friends. It apparently took her years to finish this first novel which is quite lovely.

Jane I'm so excited that the actual author wants to be my friend. I hope you're working on another book.

M.P. Yes, I'm working on a sequel involving Daniel and Mr. Stocking. Still lots of work to do before it's finished, though!
